Tasteful & Tempting Thanksgiving Tablescapes

It's that time again! Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away, but somehow I know that the weeks will just fly by and I'll be left completely stunned at how I didn't plan for anything. But I'm going to try REALLY hard not to let that happen, especially since we're hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year.

I gotta say, I am really excited about all of the different ideas I've come across in terms of designing a tablescape. Although, my problem (is it really a problem?) is that I like so many different styles that it's hard for me to even choose one element that I want to use. Sad, no? And I am at that point where I'm still not 100% sure what I want our table to look like, but one thing is for sure: people will have place cards!

*Which of the images below do you think I am leaning towards in terms of my own tablescape? The answer is at the bottom!


Where do I begin? I absolutely adore everything in this photo, esp the chandelier.

Real Simple

A modern take on the traditional Thanksgiving table, but still pays tribute with the pumpkins.


Glitz and glam aren't just for Christmas, they suit Thanksgiving nicely too.

Real Simple

Natural and organic, but not in a 'granola' sort of way.

This is elegance at it's simplest and finest, in my opinion.

*Answer: A combination of the 5th photo from the top (Country Living) and the very last photo.
